The overall culture with my teammates was fine. We all worked together like a fine tuned machine.
Support from management
From my direct supervisor, yes. Above her, absolutely not.
This job constantly encouraged co workers to work together. In my job, it was necessary at times.
Freedom to work independently
We were able to do our work pretty well without constant over the shoulder supervision.
We had pretty frequent town halls. The company as a whole was informed well but the specific area I was in didn't seem to get much direct, relateable information.
Dumb question. Of course.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Everyone was rated based on performance. Sex and age didn't matter.
There was training. Opportunities were abundant for some, not so much for others. In my location they were more few and far between and therefore very difficult to move.
Overall compensation for your work
My compensation was fair. I had no issues with that.
Office / Work Environment
The workplace was usually comfortable. The company made sure to offer comfortable seating. Sometimes temperatures would be off.
To a fault.
For me. the work-life balance was lacking. It was one of the reasons I left the company. I lived about 45 minutes away from the job so I spent too much time driving. I wanted a job that would offer a work from home option but the only offering they had would have been a step down.
I like the job for the most part. The employer was great in some ways but lacking severely in others. Unfortunately, as a large company, it wasn't easy to make changes.
My position was stable. I left by my own decision.
Facilities were completely handicap accessible with automatic doors, wider security entrances for wheelchairs and an elevator.
Adequate training and security was provided.
The work was quite challenging at times. It required a Pharmacy Tech certification in order to do it. Plenty of opportunity for error and, in some cases, long processes.
Inclusive / Diverse
Diversity, as defined by most places, was valued within the workplace. Different thoughts and ideas weren't exactly valued but not squelched.
Suggestions for improvement
- The main improvement I would suggest, really for any company, is to find the skills of the employees and cultivate those particular skills. Train and work with those employees and put them into positions where they will not only succeed but actually want to do the job.
What I like about the company
My experience with the company overall was positive. They tried to keep their people happy. Unfortunately, all the attempts to keep people happy were on the surface. Doing events, giving away a gift or piece of candy here and there, even a bonus.
What I dislike about the company
All the experiences were shallow. Once those experiences have passed, the feeling of happiness and satisfaction went away shortly after. A bonus was nice but bonuses don't last. Where it mattered, career opportunity, this company was severely lacking, at least at my site. Every time a job came open, the competition was stiff. In some cases, the person they wanted had already been chosen but they conducted interviews to show they gave everyone opportunities. I finally got frustrated and decided I wasn't going to be able to move to another position so I decided to leave the company and find an opportunity without the glass ceiling.
